This resource, which aligns with James and the Giant Peach, checks student comprehension, challenges students to make predictions, and most importantly explore their feelings!
Each day I read a chapter or two of the story aloud and asked the corresponding questions for the chapter. I marked any student responses that were interesting or significant and the initials of students who responded.
My kiddos LOVED answering the questions, exploring their emotions, and making predictions!
-I also marked many words that may be inappropriate in the text for the given age range (such as ass, violent references, etc.)
*These prompts could be used for journaling as well!
